Trails vase for Cor Unum

By 28-11-2023

Inspired by an archetypal vase shape, the fluid form in this new design is subtly interrupted by a network of horizontal and vertical paths. These paths strategically traverse the surface of the vase. The paths exhibit a rhythmic distribution of pressed dots or actual drilled holes – depending on the version. Four vertical paths run from bottom to top, intersecting two horizontal paths around the vase. Together, they form a balanced composition and a plane division that suggests the notion of a multipart entity. This concept is accentuated by the gentle bend that follows the vase’s contour, precisely at the spots where the paths reside. Beyond their visual element, these details also speak of the meticulous precision and craftsmanship.

For this purpose, Arian Brekveld not only developed the vase forms but also specialized tools for the execution of the vase series. With custom-made engraving wheels, the vase’s creator can roll the paths into the still wet clay. This concept is accentuated by the gentle bend that follows the vase’s contour, precisely at the spots where the paths reside.

In addition to the round and oval versions, a tall version will also be introduced soon.
